Bucs CB Tim Jennings scratched for Redskins game
Bucs cornerback Tim Jennings, who struggled in pass defense in his last game against the Jaguars, has gone from starter to inactive, not dressing Sunday as a healthy scratch for the Bucs' game at the Redskins.
Jennings' demotion comes as starter Johnthan Banks returns from a knee injury, starting opposite Mike Jenkins. Many of the inactives are injury-related -- TE Austin-Seferian Jenkins (shoulder), DT Tony McDaniel (groin), OT Reid Fragel (concussion) and WR Russell Shepard (hamstring) are out as well, with S Keith Tandy and QB Ryan Griffin also inactive.
Center Evan Smith is active for the first time since his ankle injury in Week 2, though Joe Hawley will start at center for the Bucs.
